The Property Market in Essex for equity release

Essex is a major commuter belt area of the UK with a high proportion of its residents working in London.  When you move away from the more popular areas of Basildon and Romford you encounter smaller market towns such as Coggeshall or Epping which are perfect locations for retirees.  Alot of the main towns in Essex are on the central line which makes them highly valued which indicates a higher amount of equity that could be released from the home.

Overall the value of property is much higher than the national average at £420,000.  The greater proportion of properties in Essex are three bedroomed semi-detached with a value of £200-£300,000.  The amount of £1million plus properties is above the national average, thus contributing to the high average property price.

Essex Equity Release

What Our Essex equity release Customers Say....

I found Shaun Tillyer extremely helpful and very professional in his approach and nothing was too much trouble for him in explaining everything to me.

As an 80+ year old, moving was very difficult, with problems of covid and ill health and the fact that my husband's hearing stops him using the phone.  Shaun ​was a life saver, visiting us and also emailing my daughter to check everything was ok.  I phoned him numerous times and he always helped in in a cheerful manner and I was never made to feel a nuisance.  His patience and kindness to me was wonderful, I felt like he was my friend.  I would recommend him to anyone.

Met Rob late 2020 to discuss equity release. He was extremely friendly and informative.  The decision was quickly made by ourselves to proceed.  Everything went well until snags with deeds and Land Registry.  Rob went the extra mile helping sort the deeds, liaising with solicitors and keeping us informed as to progress throughout. We both have no hesitation in recommending Rob to anyone thinking of equity release.  We would like to thank Rob on both a business and personal level.

Very happy with the service Rob provided.  Professional, efficient, particularly with the restrictions Covid 19 caused.  Very good with phone calls, thanks for all your help.

Rob acted in a very friendly, but professional way.  Explaining everything clearly to us step by step.  He was always available if we needed to ask any questions.

Early this year, I asked for advice on the costs, interest rates etc, to evalute whether an Equity Release plan would suit me.  When Covid 19 arrived it seemed to be better to wait until the financial markets had settled.  My advisor, Rob Polworth was very patient during this time, so I never felt pressured into making a decision.  He was happy to answer questions from one of my sons and change the amount I needed to suit my needs.  He did a full financial check to make sure I wouldn't lose any Council Tax rebate etc.
